PL Funding

PETL Course Funding is not yet available for Summer session courses. Please wait until notice is sent in the eNews when applications will be accepted.

The Local is committed to ensuring that members’ self determined professional learning needs are met. To this end, the Local offers a variety of ways for members to access funding for their professional learning need. In a funding year which runs from July 1 to June 31, a member can apply for:

  • STPDL Funding which is for conferences & workshops (accepting for opportunities until September 2024)

AND

  • PETL COURSE Funding which is for AQs, university or college courses OR PETL CONFERENCE Funding which is for conferences & workshops (accepting for opportunities ending before June 30)

AND

  • PETL STATUS Funding which is for conferences & workshops that have a women’s leadership, women’s issues or women’s equity focus (funding has been exhausted for 2023-2024; next fiscal year’s applications are not being accepted)

 

FOR CONFERENCES & WORKSHOPS MEMBERS MUST APPLY TO STPDL FIRST (or at the same time as PETL Conference/Status Funding) FOR EXPENSES & SUPPLY DAY COSTS.

IMPORTANT TIMELINES:

Applications received LATE will be DENIED (i.e., after the timelines outlined in the Guidelines specific to the type of funding you are seeking). Please review the Guidelines carefully and ensure you are following them to avoid being denied funding.

When applying for CONFERENCES that occur in mid to late October through August, members must apply for funding and supply days from STPDL. Apply to STPDL before or at the same time as applying to PETL Conference Funding, and then Status of Women Funding [if applicable].

Only in September, for September opportunities (when STPDL is NOT yet available), members can apply solely to PETL Conference Funding. PLEASE READ BOTH SETS OF GUIDELINES CAREFULLY.

WHEN APPLYING:

All applications for PETL Funding must be emailed to treasurer@etfopeel.com. Applications may also be sent in the courier or dropped off at the PETL Office. DO NOT FAX.  Members can expect a response to their application within ten (10) working days (excluding July & August), please refrain from inquiring about the status of your application within this timeframe. 

STPDL applications must go to your STPDL Chair (Do not send applications to the Chair until the updated forms are available in late September. Applications on old forms will be DENIED.).
